11:17pm
on with san jose state and louisiana tech. they are still playing right now. san jose state has the lead with approximately 2 1/2 minutes remaining in the game. once again, 53 points for the san jose state spartans right now. they're up. they're looking for their tenth win of the regular season. a feat they've never accomplished. ten wins overall, yes. but ten wins in the regular season. it's never happened before, chris. >> and that of course sounds more like a basketball score, henry, doesn't it? >> absolutely. >> save your voice, my friend. we'll see you tomorrow. and meteorologist rob mayeda is here with a look at the forecast. the folks who went out to the san jose state game must be very pleased with the weather, although getting very chilly now. >> it is. the spartans have scored in those low 50s. and temperatures matching that right now. 52 degrees in san jose. 54 san francisco. look at fairfield and santa rosa, all ready now. low 40s. not much wind out there. and we do have fog already
11:18pm
setting up. in fact some pretty thick fog along interstate 80 as you head along to solano county. that area right there fairfield into eastern contra costa county, as we head into tomorrow some of that fog may linger and keep the daytime temperatures down eye bit. also some patchy thick fog along those north bay valleys too. as we go through the next few hours, as we show you o'hour by hour overnight, we'll also have some coastal low clouds returning as the sea breeze starts to pick back up. through see some thicker fog in the central valley. that will be in our north and east bay valleys tomorrow morning and then during the afternoon hazy sunshine inland and still some patchy clouds likely on the coast. but the zliet view shows you that the storm track is still safely off to the north. this system here that will drop down through northern california will bring us some high clouds tomorrow but no rain just yet. high pressure is still holding its ground. moving slightly now into southern california and arizona to wrap up the weekend. so we've got a dry pattern we think through at least tuesday. however, big changes coming up tuesday night into wednesday. we'll see a deep area of low pressure forming here offshore.
11:19pm
and this will slingshot in at least a couple of fairly strong systems. one in on wednesday that will bring us not only the rain but also some gusty winds, especially on the coast. and then by friday as those winds across the water work that long period swell toward the coast, friday into saturday could see some high surf and then the next round of rain comes in thursday night into friday and into the start of next weekend. so in the meantime enjoy the rest of a fairly dry weekend. but a little chilly, we think, maybe out toward those east bay valleys tomorrow. 67 degrees in san jose for sunday afternoon. notice the temperatures in tri-valley, mostly upper 60s. but then as you get into concord and fairfield low to mid 60s tomorrow for a lot of thick fog for the morning and for the afternoon in the north bay should see numbers mainly in the mid to upper 60s. mid 60s in san francisco. and 67 degrees for oakland. so the next three days will be the days i want to kind of clear out the gutters or remove some of those weak branches on some of the trees because again the systems that are going to be coming in for the second half of the week will be bringing some
11:20pm
wind with it and if you've got those trees that still have a lot of leaves on them those will act like miniature parachutes and those will help to add to the drag and resistance with the wind and the fancy way of saying it's going to bring down some branches. so try to get those cleared out of the way first half of the week. second half of the week obviously wednesday rain, another system friday into saturday too. pretty stormy second half of the week. >> walking through the neighborhood we did see some freshly broken branches from the last round of rain. >> unfortunately we'll probably see more of that this week. >> thanks, rob. >> sure. still ahead at 11:00, the dash for deals lands one holiday shopper behind bars. and a pickup truck dangling over a busy freeway. how it got there and what happened next. plus, an update on the developing story we brought you at the top of this newscast. a death investigation shut down all lanes of northbound highway 101 near sfo. we'll be back in just a minute.
